Um, and those that out of frustration with people using the contact
forum to mail them directly for support instead of using the issue
queue?  Do we disable their contrib. modules?  Site admins can use the
contact form.  We have the email information and can email directly.

Not to put a fine point on it but I know several active module
contributors who have disabled their contact modules because of this
sort of abuse.
